The 2021 Nissan Qashqai: A Versatile SUV
It has been on the roads of Quebec and Canada for eight years now and is just as comfortable as it was in the beginning. Its performance is remarkable with its smooth ride and it behaves wonderfully in the city. It is also frugal at the pump.
In La Malbaie near Clermont, Charlevoix Nissan is an important player in the region and shows exceptional dedication to its customer approach and experience. Its enthusiasm is evident when it comes to its Nissan models, and even more so with the 2021 Qashqai.
The 2021 Qashqai Is Super Convenient!
The Nissan Qashqai comes in four very distinct versions: Qashqai S, Qashqai SV, Qashqai SL and Qashqai SL Platinum. Depending on the version, the Japanese engineers offer a 6-speed manual or a continuously variable transmission.
Under the hood of this SUV is a 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine that develops 141 horsepower and 147 lb-ft of torque, allowing it to excel in urban centres with ease, as well as on Quebec's scenic roads.
The SL Platinum version features 19-inch aluminum wheels, LED fog lights and intelligent all-wheel drive (AWD), which ensures a smooth ride and allows you to negotiate corners with complete peace of mind.
In 2021, the Nissan Qashqai has an even sportier and bolder look with 19-inch all-black alloys, smoked headlights and taillights, and a blackened front grille and bright black mirror caps.
Inside, the interior of the high-end 2021 Nissan Qashqai (SL Platinum) features PVC/Alcantara-trimmed seats, soft-touch materials, high-gloss black air vents and a black roof with panoramic views. Down to the smallest detail, the Japanese designers wanted to give more quality to their sub-compact SUV, which has been a big hit in Europe with 3 million units sold, as well as in Canada and Quebec.
It's worth remembering that in 2020, the Nissan Qashqai set a record in France with more than 300,000 units sold. This best-selling model, which has sold more than 5.5 million units worldwide since 2007, has recently benefited from the renewal of its powertrains and enriched its technologies. In Canada, figures show that the Nissan Qashqai has the highest sales growth at Nissan between 2018 and 2019, at 38.8%, and has become very popular thanks to its secret weapon: its price. No other competitor can offer a subcompact SUV at a price as good as Nissan's, with its Qashqai and the features that make it a flagship at Nissan Canada.
Going one step further, the 2021 Qashqai boasts a centre screen, with a standard NissanConnect infotainment system that includes Apple CarPlay integration, Android Auto, USB ports and integrated Wi-Fi.
In addition to being more dynamic, the 2021 Qashqai SUV is also smarter than many of its rivals, both in the city and on the roads of Quebec and Canada. It benefits from many advanced technologies included as standard, such as the ProPILOT Assist driver assistance system that monitors highway driving, helps keep the vehicle in the lane, regulates speed and manages traffic jams.
Finally, there is the intelligent Parking Assist automated parking function, which uses advanced sensors to identify a suitable parking space and then performs the maneuver autonomously. All in all, this SUV is equipped to stay up late and will give you hours of fun wherever you go and whatever the season.
